Crystal City Oktoberfest

  • Date: Sep 28, 2019
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Crystal City Oktoberfest is back for its second year with a new and improved format!

Hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District, in partnership with New District Brewing, this year's event will feature a selection of local beers, live entertainment - including local Oompah band Alte Kumpel, and the 19th Street Band - and a variety of food trucks (powered by Curbside Kitchen) and vendors serving traditional German fare. 

Thanks to New District Brewing, this year’s Oktoberfest will include custom-made beers brewed specifically for the event. In addition to the four custom brews – available only during Crystal City Oktoberfest – each participating brewery will have their most popular regular offerings available for attendees to enjoy.

Ticket holders will receive a full-sized custom mug and drink tickets redeemable for all four exclusive beers. VIP tickets will include early admission and additional drink tickets.

The four custom Crystal City Oktoberfest beers are: Oktoberfest from New District Brewing
Heffeweizen from Dynasty*
Altbier from Settle Down Easy*
Helles from Valor*

As an added incentive, we have partnered with Nift (Neighborhood Gift) to give EACH ticket purchaser a $30 Nift Gift! 

*All custom beers are brewed in collaboration with New District Brewing.

12oz Collectors Mug 4 drink tickets Access from 1-4pm

This event is rain or shine and all tickets are non-refundable. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Either printed or digital tickets are required for entry (along with your ID). 

What if I don't like beer?

We personally think you just haven't found the RIGHT beer yet... HOWEVER, we have wine drinker tickets available which come with four drink tickets and general admission access.
